Jack Murphy, Who Had a Stadium Named for Him, and Other Autographs on a Program.

Lot 257. Jack Murphy, Who Had a Stadium Named for Him, and Other Autographs on a Program. Jack Murphy Stadium in San Diego was named after Murphy, a sports editor and columnist for the “San Diego Union” newspaper from 1951-80. He was a key figure in getting the American Football League Chargers to move south from Los Angeles, landing the Padres as a National League expansion baseball team in 1969, and lobbying for a new stadium. The 54,000-seat San Diego Stadium was renamed San Diego Jack Murphy Stadium, or simply Jack Murphy Stadium, in 1980. In 1997, the name was changed to Qualcomm Stadium, although veteran local fans still sometimes refer to it as “The Murph.” This 1971 Milwaukee Old Timers Baseball Association dinner program is signed by 20 attendees, including Murphy, whose signature is rare. He signed between two lines of text and partially over “Old Timers” on the program cover. Other signatures are by Dick Ellsworth, Ted Savage, Roy McMillan, Jim Slaton, Jackie Moore, Rick Auerbach, John Briggs, Floyd Wicker, Andy Kosco and Wes Stock. Kevin Keating authenticated the autographs. Winning Bid $35.
